House Rules

As we like to say, 'utupoa' means 'humanity is great.' We like to live up to this in terms of how we treat the beach, each other, and our relationship with the local village.

Our location dictates that we look after the environment. Water is a precious resource and electricity is still very much a privilege, not a right here. We ask that our guests respect and understand this paradise we are lucky to spend time in, and to help us protect it.

Comfortable, secluded, relaxing place right on the beach. Hit the spot for my wife and I after finishing a strenuous hike.

T&J’s house is a pleasure to us. The house is typical of African style. The interior design and arrangement is African and a bit of colonial style. Also I like the books, maps and all other curiosities. Also the family dinner is unique. We eat like a family, which is definitely a…

Tim was a pilot in the Middle East when we first came to Zanzibar on a flight he was operating. It was 1992, before electricity, tarmac or cell phone networks. We fell in love with Matemwe and have made it our home. It is a home that we like sharing, and are very happy to welcome…
